I remember way back when dinosaurs roamed the earth watching Habs games on HNIC and seeing 5-6 Hab players (prospects) watching from the skybox in the old Montreal Forum.  Players who ended up being good NHLers like Mark Napier, Rod Langway, Bill Nyrop, Brian Engblom, Pierre Mondou all started on the Habs "taxi squad" of the 1970s.  

If memory serves correct (I too was around when the dinosaurs roamed the Earth) the Canadiens had such a monopoly on prospects that it was rare to see any draft pick go straight to the big club.  I still can't help but think that much pressbox time and no game time isn't exactly great for development, but that's just my take.

I asked this in the Vegas/ Colo thread , but no answer

Reeves gets 2-2-5

is there a rule about whether the penalties are served 

2-2-5

or 5-2-2

or is it in the order they were called

 

I thought it would be 2-2-5, so the first penalty is over after 2 minutes

 

when Makar scored with 1:16 left, that wiped out the remaining time

was that a mistake?

game management?

or arbitrary?

 

I noticed Girard asking the Ref before the puck was dropped

I read on reddit that it was 5-2-2 but there was no source

From the rule book:

20.1 Major Penalty - For the first major penalty in any one game, the offender, except the goalkeeper, shall be ruled off the ice for five (5) minutes during which time no substitute shall be permitted.

When one player receives a major penalty and a minor penalty at the same time, the major penalty shall be served first by the penalized player (or substitute for the goalkeeper), except under Rule 19.2 where coincidental major penalties are in effect, in which case the minor penalty will be recorded and served first.

thanks 

that clears that up

so the announcer was incorrect saying that they had made it into the major when 4:59 was left in the penalty

 

so, in that instance, had Colo scored with 4:59 left in the penalty

that would have been during the major and no time comes off the penalty clock

had they scored with 3:59 left the clock drops to 2:00 minutes left

Ohh, good question. Longer ELCs with escalating salaries, then straight to UFA? Defined 2nd contract maximums in the CBA?

 

I'm just throwing things at the wall, it's a fun question.

Yes, ELCs that cushion the difference for both parties. ie that reflect increased value of a young player by performance. Like a sort of ballon increase at the end maybe? Before rfa status?

What are the alternatives to the Offer Sheets? 

 None.   Personally i think it's time that the league disposed of them entirely.   All it does is create contention amongst the other GMs.   Also feel that it's time to create new limits on both RFAs and UFA contract length.  The majority of the NHLPA actually suffers ... blue chip

guys don't but they aren't the majority.   The NHL and the NHLPA can't ice the best product and can't afford to pay escalating second contract money and UFAs that keep earning at the same time.   Right now 80% of the league is bumping up against the cap... a very small cushion for trades.    Covid didn't seem to matter to GMs they just keep spending regardless.   Going to be a tough time for both sides for awhile.   The system isn't quite broken yet but it's getting close....The middle class players take it the most.   Careers are shorter then they should be and guys take less then they should get to stay in the league, using AHLers to balance the books isn't great product wise...hope they can hash it out and make a better product.

Thank you. I totally agree. The NHLPA might not though.

I think that was the question. Pretend offersheets are axed, what would you propose to change around the construction of RFA rights and/or ELCs?

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Maybe raise the maximum salary for ELCs to 1.5 mil (still at 3 years) after 3 years the player can elect to extend the contract at the same salary for one year OR the team can elect to extend the contract for up to 3 years with salary increasing by 500k each year (2.5 mil AAV). Upon expiry of either option, the player is a UFA.

 

Alternatively, say any subsequent contract can not exceed 200% the AAV of the the highest previous contract. (Simplifying things to say ELCs are $1 million) pretty much all high-end RFAs would be locked up at $2 mil, $4 mil, and $8 mil in years 4, 5, and 6 respectively. UFA upon completion of their 6th year on an NHL contract.

 

And finally, ditch the hard cap and implement a progressive spending tax. Like the NBA

Apologies if this question has been asked before - how much money, if any, does a player earn on a PTO? 

There's no money earned but expenses are covered.  Here's the wording for a PTO contract from the CBA.

 

In consideration of the agreement by the Club to pay the reasonable round-trip travel expenses from his Address below (or whatever location the Player shall designate by notice in writing to the Club), to the Club’s Training Camp (or whatever location the Club shall designate by notice in writing to the Player), as well as accommodations, per diem and meals, the Player agrees to present himself, when called upon to do so, at any location designated by the Club, for the purposes of demonstrating his ability and qualifications as a hockey player.

Does anyone else miss the shootout ? Before the new OT format,  there would be shootouts on the highlight reel all the time. They are more suspenseful that 3 on 3 OT and good for entertainment.

 

We should go back to the old format so we have some shootouts.

Nah I love 3 on 3 much more of a team aspect.

 

Shootout is a skills competition that is not a fair way to decide an important game imo even though there have been some pretty epic shootout moments in the world juniors and Olympics and crazy rules where shooters can be repeated after the regular guys get their shot attempts.

 

3 on 3 hockey imo is a better alternative than a shootout.

 

I hate soccer shootouts bring back the golden goal!

 

The Canucks could have JT Miller with Garland and Hughes that would be a lethal trio to dominate time of possession.

 

Would love to see those 3 out there on a 3 on 3 shift.

What does JR do as PHO?   Is he the "big daddy" and everything goes through him?  Does he vet all decisions?  Does PA need JR's approval for all trades?   I'm just wondering what JR's job actually is....how much power over decisions does PA have?
